Rock My Portfolio, Austin Smith

The following video is part of our "Talking Stocks" series, in which Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith and our chief technology officer break down each other's portfolios.

In today's edition, Jeremy gives Austin an honest opinion on three of his top holdings. Jeremy is pretty bullish on those two picks that are largely tied to the tech boom, but he's hugely skeptical of Austin's pick in heavily shorted SUPERVALU (NYSE: SVU  ) , and with good reason. SUPERVALU is heavily indebted and still suffers from declining same-store sales.

No surprise then that, as our chief technology officer, the real winners Jeremy sees are in the tech sphere.

    The MF camera guys seem to have gotten the lighting right for the first time on this video. Or is it just Austin's nice tan?!

    I would disagree with trecer in that they put the lighting in the wrong position so that it is reflected in the upper right hand corner of the screen behind Austin.

    In addition, the close-up shots were way too close, leaving just their heads, which appeared to bounce around my screen (as even slight movements of the head were amplified) and made it difficult to watch.

    The above problems video production problems distracted from the points about investing that they were trying to get across to the audience.
